We work with a cadre of seasoned teaching artists who are committed to both youth and their own artistic career. We are unique amongst New York City’s many excellent arts education programs in that we specialize in placing traditional and folk artists in schools to share their expertise with students and teachers. We also collaborate with contemporary artists and a host of guest artists whose own artwork explores the themes of community, identity, and history.

We offer artist residencies in these disciplines: dance, music, poetry, theater, visual arts including folk and traditional arts.
